Non-Emergency? Call (604) 717-3321
Many reports to police do not require a police officer to attend in person. If there is no suspect or there is no potential evidence for officers to collect, your call can usually be handled over the telephone. Examples of crimes that should be reported via the non-emergency line:
- thefts under $5,000
- stolen vehicles
- lost property
- stolen or lost licence plates and validation tags
See other examples of when to call the non-emergency line.
